Well, I kind of feel I made a fool of myself, 'cus how hard can it be to find a particular song in 1970 if it was only played once in 1970? OTOH, my mistake wasn't really that stupid; I didn't have the baseline knowledge that it was only played once. I assumed it was played many times in 1970 and that searching, therefore, would be time consuming. I just figured someone knew the answer, and would springboard from there into discussions of "Box of Rain 1970."

I didn't figure they would springboard instead to educational maladies of our era ... lordy. And now we've offended the prime minister (emeritus).

I assume Box of Rain WAS played many times in 1970. It is a sad state of affairs that no other tapes exist. Perhaps in the vault somewheres? This is a good question for Lemieux!

It's nice to have a more or less friendly diversion from the GD sometimes on here. These kinds of discussions always impress me with the maturity, eloquence, intelligence, and aptitude for debate of posters around here. Love me some food for thought. Yummmmm
